Christians are generally not aware of this Muhammad who the Muslims claim as their prophet. Even though most Christians would consider Muhammad as a False Prophet in biblical terminology, it is important that Christians get educated about this entity from Arabia whom the Muslims follow. As a start, it is important that we know the basics about this person. The Ingredients of the Arabian Prophet has to be kept in mind.
When Christians want to know the Birth, Life and Death of Jesus Christ, they turn to the pages of the New Testament. The First Four books are called the Gospels. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John addresses these basic questions about Jesus. However, that is not with the case of Muhammad. We have to go all over the place to get some basic idea of their prophet. There is hardly any information about Muhammad in the Qurán. We have to search through the Hadiths, Tafsirs, and Islamic history books to know Muhammad.
The following is a Data-Sheet that gives an idea about this Man.

How did Qathem Become Muhammad?
Historian Nur al-Din al-Halabi, the author of the book Insan al-`uyun fi Sirat al-Amin wa-lMa’mun, popularly known as al-Sira al-Halabiyya, V.1 page 128, says:
“Muhammad’s birth name was Qathem (not to be confused with Qasem, which was the name of Muhammad’s first son). Qathem means damaged or rotten, such as damaged milk.
“After the death of Qathem Ibn Abd-Al-Mu’taleb (Muhammad’s Uncle) at the age of nine, three years before Muhammad was born, his father Abd-Al-Mu’taleb felt so bad that when the prophet was born, he named him Qathem.”Nur al-Din al-Halabi
The so-called “Official” Family tree of Muhammad
The Shortest available family tree of Muhammad is displayed below. This information is from Islamic sources. As usual, we can be sure that there is some tampering done to somehow connect him with Ishmael, the son of Abraham.
The Christian Perspective for the Name Change of Qathem
Names carry meaning and purpose. The Ingredients of the Arabian Prophet would start with the change of Name. Therefore Qathem (The Rotten one), had to start with a makeover. Investigating a bit further, the makeover had a biblical angle to it. Let us read the Hadith in which Qathem changed his name to Muhammad.
Narrated Jubair bin Mut ‘im: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “I have five names: I am Muhammad and Ahmad; I am Al-Mahi through whom Allah will eliminate infidelity; I am Al-Hashir who will be the first to be resurrected, the people being resurrected thereafter, and I am also Al-`Aqib (i.e. There will be no prophet after me).Sahih Bukhari 3532
Study this table and analyse the intent of the man.

|Ahmad||The Praised One||Al-Hamid (#56 of 99 names)||Worthy of All praise and Honour (Psalm 145:3,Phil 2:9)|
|Eraser (Al-Mahi)||The One through whom Christianity would be Erased||Al-Mahi (Quran 22:52)||He Blots away our sins (Isaiah 43:25,Col 2:14)|
|The Collector (Al-Hashir)||The One through whom Allah would collect all Humanity in the day of Judgement||Al-Muhsi (#57 of 99 names)||He is the Judge of All (Isa 33:22,John 5:22)|
|The Last (Al-`Aqib)||No One comes after Me||Al-Akhi'r (#74 of 99 names)||He is THE LAST (Isa 44:6, Rev 1:17, Rev 22:13)|
Connecting the Biblical Eschatology
Any serious student of biblical eschatology will know certain facts about the coming Anti-Christ Entity.
- Is called the Man of Lawlessness(2 Thessalonians 2:3) and the Abomination that causeth desolation (Matthew 24:15)
- Exalts himself over everything that is called God (2 Thessalonians 2:3)
- Wage war against the holy people of God (Revelation 13:7, Daniel 7:25)
- He will change the Laws and Times (Daniel 7:25)
Would you be able to exclude any of the above four points from Muhammad? Click here to read through the other articles about the life of Muhammad and you will know that he was indeed a Man of Lawlessness. Wherever Islam goes and when Muslims becomes Majority, they change the laws of the land. In fact, every Muslim Nation abides by the Shariah Law which is Strictly Islamic in Nature. The Shahada that is the confession of every Muslim, is indeed a way of Exalting Muhammad to God’s Level. The following is the Shahada which is the first step to become a Muslim.
Wherever Islam goes, they desecrate the places of worship of other people. It is indeed an abomination that causeth desolation. With Muhammad taking on himself the Name of Al-Mahi to erase Christianity, what more do we need? Read the Below verses from the Qur’an and Hadith to erase any doubt regarding the intent. You will not miss out to notice the wild ingredients of the Arabic Prophet.
Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day, nor comply with what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, nor embrace the religion of truth from among those who were given the Scripture,1 until they pay the tax,2 willingly submitting, fully humbled.Sura 9:29
They wish you would disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so you may all be alike. So do not take them as allies unless they emigrate in the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and do not take any of them as allies or helpers,1Sura 4:89
It has been narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah said:I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer, and pay Zakat and if they do it, their blood and property are guaranteed protection on my behalf except when justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah.Sahih Muslim 22
A Peek view of the Future
Now, am I telling that the Antichrist empire of Islam is has come and gone along with Muhammad? Of course not. I am alluding to a passage of the bible which says that the Kingdom of darkness has been trying to enter humanity and it was that Godly restriction that has not allowed them to rule over mankind, yet.
5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.2 Thess 2:5-12
The above scripture portion is clear that the power of lawlessness is already at work, but the restrainer has held back that evil power from manifesting in all its fullness. However, it will be allowed to manifest at the end of days and we will see the climax of this age. I firmly believe that the end-time antichrist empire will be an Islamic One and we will have to boldly face that eventuality.
Dear Muslims, this series about the prophet of Islam will bring to light that you are following the epitome of Evil. We are doing a thorough investigation about the life of Qathem a.k.a Muhammad. You can choose to ignore these warnings and follow the life of Qathem, but God will bring all your deeds to judgement.
For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.Eccl 12:14
